Bugs in a Tub

Okay if you have fished with me, you understand that one of my strengths is not Latin terminology for aquatic insects.  I have a very simple approach to aquatic life.  Match the color and size.  But sometimes knowing a little bit more than they other guy, can give you an advantage.  Below is a video of a couple bugs in the tub.  Late May and early June the Manistee as both the Siphlonurus Nymph and Baetisca Nymph swimming around pretty regularly, in certain sections.  And yes I had to look those names up!

I have been using Ann Miller’s new Hatch Guide for Upper Midwest Streams.  I highly recommend this book, contact Ann at AnnRMiller@aol.com .  This is a great guide for on the stream and at the fly tying bench.  Thank you Ann.
